What's Up Creampuff: Dudes That Got Hurt

| | Comments (8)
stretcher.JPGThis week each one of our lucky invalids gets a free shirt. Not really, because they're millionaires and they should buy their own. Plus they've got nothing else to do but surf the net, and you probably shouldn't watch porn if you have rotator cuff tendinitis.

  • Rafael Soriano, Braves: Soriano hits the DL for the third time this season with right elbow problems. What really should worry Braves fans is that this time, Raffi picked up his banana phone and called Dr. Death, James Andrews. Methinks this won't be the last time you'll hear his name today.

  • Mark Grudzielanek, Royals: Mark looks like he's done for the season with a torn ankle ligament. All ligaments are important, but in particular the one that keeps your foot on your leg. There's video of the injury in that link. THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT, G. LOAD.

  • Joba Chamberlain, Yankees: Joba's arm injury caused more hand wringing in New York than a money manager's poodle being dropped out of a penthouse window. Thank jeebus it was only rotator cuff tendinitis and not a tear. Joba's stuff is electric, no doubt but you have to wonder if durability issues are going to force the Yankees' hand into making him a closer.

  • Adam Jones, Orioles: Jones was really start to come into his own as the season progressed, I'm sure much to the chagrin of Seattle. For some unknown reason the baseball gods thought it would be funny for Jones to break his foot in a game against those very Mariners. Seattle is a black hole of misery this summer. Don't go near it.

  • Billy Wagner, Mets: The much maligned closer was put on the DL with a sore forearm. Ready, go. Worse bullpen, Tigers or Mets? Both have been lousy and have seen matters made both better AND worse by recent injuries to their over the hill closers. I report, you decide.

WHAT IS OVER THE HILL MEAN.

Good thing the Braves signed Soriano to a 2yr/18M contract before this season.

Our intern Todd Jones tells me that we are having site difficulties today. We're upgrading our server, which is the smartest thing ever to do on a Friday afternoon. So if you have trouble, be patient, and go read a D.H. Lawrence novel.

...stay tuned.

WHAT UP TODD DAWG? WANNA TRY MY MOM"S PLANTAIN BROWNIES I JUST FINALLY GOTS MY CARE PACKIGES. THERE WAS LIKE 4 PACKIGES STACKED UP AT THE POST OFFICE. WHY DIDN"T ANYBODY TELL ME THEY WERE THEIR BEFORE!?!?!

HI ANDY I MISS UR PLANTAIN BROWNIES I USED TO EAT THEM SO MUCH. NOW MEBBE YOU GOT FAT CUZ YOU EAT ALL OF THEM. DID YOU KNOW I'm HITTING 400 MEBBE THE LACK OF BROWNIES HELPS ME HIT.

Methinks in light of his injury, and as yet another Jones, Adam Jones should get his own commenter privileges.

"and you probably shouldn't watch porn if you have rotator cuff tendinitis."

Paging Mr Zambrano...

I once got tennis elbow from watching too much porn.
